Heinz Frank (*1939 Vienna - 2020 Vienna) studied architecture with E. A. Plischke at the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna from 1965 until 1969. Since 1971, his work has been shown in numerous solo and group exhibitions at art institutions and galleries in Austria, Germany, Belgium, Turkey, Ukraine, and Switzerland.
Trained as an electrical engineer and architect, Heinz Frank worked hands-on as a sculptor, draftsman, painter, and creator of linguistic and object art, as well as occasionally, designer of interiors and furniture. Aphoristic notes such as “The hole is the epitome of emptiness” provide the initial sparks for a creative process resulting in pictures and constructions blurring boundaries between genres, techniques, and materials.
Frank’s background in architecture is evident throughout his work: the measure of all things, of their proportions and relation to the space around them, remains the human being—and the artist himself.
